Dr. Oz - Advice for Aging Skin

In December 2010, Dr. Oz, television’s doctor for women’s health and beauty, did a segment called “3 Items to Look Younger.” He named 3 “mystery” ingredients in skin care products that help the skin of people over the age of 50 to look younger. The three ingredients are: Argireline, Alpha Hydroxy Acid and Azelaic Acid. We wouldn’t want to argue with him on any of these because at glo.therapeutics, we also are fans of these three “A” ingredients.
Dr. Oz said that peptides, in particular Argireline are the key to minimizing crow’s feet around the eyes. As far as AHAs, he pointed out that they work wonders on rough, dry, scaly skin. With regular use, Alpha Hydroxy Acids can also work to increase your collagen. Dr. Oz’s mystery ingredient for age spots is Azelaic acid which inhibits melanin - the culprit behind skin darkening.
Some of our favorite and most effective glo.therapeutics serums contain these very ingredients that doctors recommend. Our Super Serum has three peptides as key ingredients; one of them is Argireline. Our Renew Serum and Retinol CS both contain active percentages of Alpha Hydroxy Acids and both the Lightening and Brightening Serums have Azelaic Acid in them!
There is no mystery about it, glo.therapeutics has it all for making skin over 50 look younger!

Love from London!

Thanks to fellow blogger LondOnTheInside for the "glo-ing" review of our new Vitamin C glo.therapeutics facial! Here is what they have to say:
"The 60 minute, 12 step facial uses a collection of vitamin C serums to transform a tired complexion into a bright, youthful, glowing appearance. There were plenty of massages - the neck, shoulders, face and hands, exfoliation and lots and lots of lovely products....

"That was a week ago and we are happy to report that our skin is still dimple free and looking plump and fresh. We’d certainly recommend the glotherapeutics vitamin C facial - we for one are sure we’ll return…"

6 Things You May Not Know About Retinol

1) Retinol is a great ingredient for people who have skin that has lost its elasticity, is environmentally damaged, leathery, aged or dull. It is ideal to promote cell renewal, brighten and rejuvenate. Acneic skin can also benefit from the cellular renewal.

2) Nighttime application is recommended. Start by applying your retinol-based product 2-3 nights per week and increase frequency of use to every night if it is well tolerated.

3) For skin that is resistant to peeling, Retinol can be just the ticket. A few weeks of using a Retinol based product nightly will guarantee better results from a treatment. There is evidence that pre-treatment use of Retinol also accelerates healing after a chemical peel. Use can be resumed as soon as the skin has recovered from the exfoliation.

4) This type of serum can be used to intensify a chemical exfoliation. Applying it between layers of the Modified Jessner or Salicylic Acid peels or adding Retinol to the end of a treatment will add depth to the treatment. It is a strong, effective addition for creating change in the skin.

5) The combination of Retinol with Glycolic Acid and brighteners found in glo.therapeutics' Retinol CS is perfect for “Baby Boomer” skin that has been abused and sun damaged. It effectively penetrates the skin to minimize the appearance of fine lines, pore size and texture irregularities.

6) Retinol may increase the skin’s sensitivity to sunlight. A sunscreen should be worn daily.
